Understanding Threats – The on-going online attack

You don’t need to be a cybersecurity expert to ensure that your business is protected, but it is critical that you understand the online threats to your company’s network. Awareness of key threats will enable you to employ practices and behaviors that limit your company’s risk.
Today’s businesses face several major online threats:


Spam

Spam, unsolicited junk email, can be both received and distributed by businesses.

To avoid ramifications from the FTC, all corporate emails to customers must abide by the following guidelines as stated in the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003:

If you or your employees receive spam, forward it to spam@uce.gov. The FTC uses this database to pursue legal actions against spammers.


Phishing
Phishing attacks usually use fraudulent emails to trick consumers into sharing their personal data, such as Social Security numbers, or financial information (credit card account numbers, user names and passwords, etc.).
